Born in Flames

Born in Flames is a 1983 science fiction film styled as a documentary about this alternative America, observing the 10th anniversary of the War of Liberation. The movie won the Reader Jury prize at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Grand Prix at the Creteil International Women's Film Festival. It focuses on feminism and violence against women. It is definitely a period piece, and yet the message about abuse of power still needs to be heard.

Queering the Closet says,
The main reason for seeing Born in Flames is for the intellectual butt kicking it provides. While not a very pretty or well polished, there's enough brain power behind the philosophical issues addressed and provocative subtext to put the most intelligent academic scholar to shame.
DVD Verdict says, "Born in Flames is a compelling, sobering rebuke to the growing political apathy both in America and worldwide. If only more films were like it." Rotten Tomatoes has a 66% audience score but no critics rating.
